Young people are expected to remain in education until the age of 18 to be supported to achieve their best possible educational outcomes with the resources available, in preparation for their adult life. This will include high quality careers advice.
Colleges and training providers offer bespoke study programmes and specific student support for young people with additional needs, special education needs and/or disabilities.
Colleges and training providers provide full time and part time study programmes with a range of study options, including vocational, academic (GCSEs and A levels), supported internships and traineeships. All study programmes will include enrichment activities. They also offer apprenticeships and progression to some local higher educational study. Many colleges offer onsite training, working in environments that are open to the public, such as restaurants or hair and beauty salons.
